Residential College Architect Wins Driehaus Prize

The New York Times reports in its February 23rd issue that Demetri Porphyrios, “the architect and theorist whose designs include Whitman College, Princeton’s newest residential college; and the Grove Quadrangle of Magdalen College at Oxford, has been named the recipient of the $100,000 second annual Richard H. Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture. The prize honors a major contributor in traditional and classical architecture or historic preservation. Dr. Porphyrios, the principal of the London-based Porphyrios Associates, is to receive the accolade, administered through the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, in a ceremony on March 20 in the ballroom at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Besides the $100,000 award, the prize, endowed by Richard H. Driehaus, the founder and chairman of Driehaus Capital Management in Chicago, includes a bronze and stone replica of the Choregic Monument of Lysikrates in Athens.”
